The US DoJ announces the formation of a «Procurement Collusion Strike Force»

The US Department of Justice (DOJ) on November 5 announced the formation of the Procurement Collusion Strike Force (PCSF). This interagency initiative will “lead a coordinated national response to combat antitrust crimes and related schemes in government procurement, grant, and program funding at all levels of government.” [1] The strike force follows an innovative “district-based task organization model” that partners with US Attorney offices. The strike force is composed of prosecutors, attorneys, and investigators from several agencies: • The Antitrust Division of the DOJ, both Criminal and Civil Sections • 13 US Attorney offices (which likely will be expanded) • US Department of Defense Office of Inspector General, Federal Bureau of Investigation, General Services Administration
